Artist Sabine Bayley who died last week will be remembered at a celebration of her life and work in St Albans on Sunday.
As well as her work with ceramics, she had been a dedicated member of the spiritual care team at Grove House over the past decade.
Born in Germany, Sabine grew up in Canada and moved to England as a research scientist in her 20s. For the past 30 years, she has lived in Harpenden with her husband Peter, bringing up their two daughters, Philippa and Olivia, and developing her talents as a local artist, potter and sculptor.
Over the years, Sabine has exhibited her work widely, particularly through the Herts Open Studios, where she also demonstrated her ceramic techniques, including raku kiln firing, at her studio in Harpenden.
Her enthusiasm and artistry is credited with encouraging people of all ages to engage in pottery and her nature-inspired pieces can be found in many Hertfordshire homes and gardens.
Sabine brought her artistic talents into her work with the spiritual care team at Grove House where she took enormous satisfaction from helping to provide end-of-life care. That experience helped her to come to terms with her own terminal diagnosis, which she faced over a period of more than three years.
A celebration of her life and work is being held at Kingsbury Barn in St Michael’s, St Albans, from 2-6pm on Sunday.
